Pool House Sex Assault Suspect May Have Struck Again

Arlington Police believe a man who assaulted a woman in her apartment complex’s pool house may have struck again just before 11:00 Friday night.

Investigators say a 5’7″ Hispanic man grabbed a woman from behind as she was walking behind a restaurant on the 2000 block of Wilson Boulevard in Courthouse. The man restrained the woman as he touched her sexually. She fought back and eventually got away.

The attack was similar in nature to an assault that occurred in the pool house of a Rosslyn apartment complex on May 8, police said. The victim of that assault was able to fight off her attacker, who she also described as a 5’7″ Hispanic male.

Anyone with information about either incident is asked to call the Arlington Police Tip Line at 703-228-4242. Witnesses can also call Arlington County Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS (8477).
